Iowa Wind Power Industry (HBO)

President Trump’s Energy Independence Executive Order clearcuts through a swath of environmental regulations, including President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which rewarded states that invested in renewable energies like wind power.

The state that wagered the most on wind turbines wasn’t California or Vermont. It was Iowa. And that bet has paid off in the form of a powerful local industry that won’t take kindly to Trump’s threats against it.

Newton, Iowa is a small town of 15,000 people, located about 3o miles east of Des Moines. In 2007, the wind blade manufacturer TPI Composites set up shop in Newton, bringing 500 new jobs along with it. Newton’s story isn’t an isolated case.

Throughout the American heartland, wind jobs are on the rise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, wind turbine technician is the fastest growing job in the U.S., and most of those jobs are found in rural, agricultural places like Iowa.

Arielle Duhaime Ross traveled to Iowa to see how the wind power industry could be affected by Trump’s latest executive order.

Trump’s Guide To Dealing With Protesters

Watch “America’s Election 2016: Immigrant Iowa” – http://bit.ly/1TB9jTz

Donald Trump’s campaign rallies have gained notoriety following instances of violence from both Secret Service agents and supporters alike. But the threat of chokeholds and punches hasn’t stopped immigrant activist Kenia Calderon from protesting against Trump and other candidates.

The number of Latinos in Iowa has doubled in the last decade, but they’re not just flocking to Des Moines and other urban centers. Immigration has radically transformed the state’s rural heartland, which was once lily-white. Fueled by the meatpacking industry’s demand for cheap labor, small towns like Storm Lake now have schools with student bodies that are 82 percent non-white.

During the Iowa Caucuses, VICE News traveled to Marshalltown to attend a packed Trump rally and talk to Iowans about immigration. With Republican candidates calling for ramped-up deportations and closed borders, young undocumented activist Kenia Calderon has made it her mission to include immigrant rights in the political conversation.

In spite of his weak showing at the Iowa caucus, Donald Trump has a loyal supporter in Alec Bognar. Bognar stumped for Trump in advance of the Iowa caucus in hopes of swaying his fellow students on the very liberal, pro-Bernie Drake University campus in Des Moines. VICE News sat down with Bognar to find out what it’s like to be a lonely Trump supporter.

America’s Election 2016: Immigrant Iowa

The Iowa caucuses are the first major contest in the race for the American presidency. In the weeks leading up to caucus night, candidates descend on the state to shake hands, kiss babies, and woo supporters. While the caucuses don’t always signal which candidates will go on to win their party’s nomination, they do set the tone for the race going forward. And in this election cycle, the immigration rhetoric in Iowa has been uniquely harsh.

The number of Latinos in Iowa has doubled in the last decade, but they’re not just flocking to Des Moines and other urban centers. Immigration has radically transformed the state’s rural heartland, which was once lily-white. Fueled by the meatpacking industry’s demand for cheap labor, small towns like Storm Lake now have schools with student bodies that are 82 percent non-white.

With Republican candidates calling for ramped-up deportations and closed borders, young undocumented activist Kenia Calderon has made it her mission to include immigrant rights in the political conversation.
